Udinese 1-1 Roma: The game suspended after Ndika collapse

Last Updated on 15/04/2024 by

The play between Roma and Udinese was called off after Evan Ndicka complained of chest symptoms and fainted. The score was tied 1-1 at the time of the suspension.

In the first few minutes of the game, Lucca made a run on a through ball played by Roberto Pereyra. However, Diego Llorente’s close marking caused him to miss the opportunity to finish it off. Subsequently, the towering center forward made a mistake with his header after Lazar Samardzic’s ball that was played over the top.

Maduka Okoye had to get down quickly in order to paw a Tommaso Baldanzi volley off the line from a set play. Jaka Bijol also made a mistake by putting a free header over from six yards out on a corner.

Pereyra grabbed the ball and sprinted forward to dink the finish over an onrushing Svilar into the empty net. This was the moment when Udinese had won back the ball multiple times in the final third and made it count. Dean Huijsen had taken far too much time to get the ball under control.

After only thirty minutes of play, Daniele De Rossi switched back to a 4-3-3 configuration by abandoning the 3-5-2 formation. This was not the first time in his tenure that he had done so.

Leandro Paredes stung Okoye’s gloves from a distance, and Lucca tested Svilar when the ball was given away once more. Lucca scored a goal after the ball was given away again.

Roma’s Paulo Dybala was able to get the volley away within the penalty area because Nehuen Perez did a good job of reading the free kick that was taken by Paredes. The pressure was increasing, and Roma equalized the score when Bryan Cristante’s cross from the right side found Lukaku for a thunderous header despite the fact that two defenders were anticipating it.

The back-heel flick that Dybala made found Baldanzi, who then delivered a cross that was deflected onto the head of Lukaku, who was charging down from six yards away.

Roma were making a concerted effort to alter the tide of the match, but in the 72nd minute, Ndicka abruptly fell, which caused widespread alarm. After rushing over with a defibrillator, the medical personnel did not utilize it on the patient.

The Roma defender was taken away on a stretcher and appeared to be conscious and attentive. He gave a thumbs up sign to the crowd as he was being transported. Due to the fact that his colleagues and coach Daniele De Rossi were too concerned to continue with the match, the referee decided to call a halt to the proceedings.

In accordance with the regulations of the Serie A, Udinese vs Roma will be restarted from the point in time and the scoreline when it was halted, with the players who were currently on the field.
